The driver of the vehicle and his dog were removed from the car and the man was able to walk up the embankment with the help of firefighters.

It’s unclear if any injuries were sustained in the crash, but the man was taken into an awaiting ambulance by paramedics.

The dump truck had stopped along the side of the highway as a result of the incident.

Traffic was blocked in both directions on Luckakuck as crews tended to the scene and removed the vehicle.
